Next weekend – November 1, 2, and 3 – is Central Canada Comic Con, or C4. There are some awesome guests this year, including Ron Perlman, Tony Amendola, Walter Koenig, James Marsters, Bruce Boxleitner, David Prowse, Avery Brooks ((Hawk! Hawk is coming!)), and Chris Sarandon. There are lots of others, too – those are just the ones I’m personally most excited about.
As has become traditional, I’ll be hauling a huge pile of boardgames, card games, and roleplaying games down to the convention, and demoing them in the game area for Imagine Games & Hobbies. It looks like the gaming area is in the same spot as last year, on the second floor of the Convention Centre. Unlike last year, it looks like you’ll need to actually purchase a con pass for access to the gaming area.
I will be showing up early on Saturday ((Prior commitments prevent me from attending on Friday evening.)) morning, and will be in the room all day Saturday and Sunday, running, demoing, playing, talking about, and answering questions about games. You should join me.
How do you get in on the gaming? Simple! Come by the table, find a game that looks like fun, find me – I’m usually within arm’s reach of the table – and say, “Can we play this?” If you already know the game, you’re good to go. If you need me to demo or run the game, you’re good to go as long as I’m not currently running a different game and we have enough people for that particular game.
Pro tip: if there’s a particular game that you really, really want to play, check the box for how many players it can handle, and bring your own group. That way, we don’t have to scramble to find other players and – bonus – you get to play with your friends!
Here’s a tentative ((Subject to change if packing any of them proves a problem or if I think of something better to bring.)) list of the games I’m bringing:
- Firefly boardgame
- Firefly RPG
- Fortune and Glory
- Betrayal at the House on the Hill
- Tsuro of the Seas
- Zombie Dice
- Cthulhu Dice
- Leverage RPG
- Marvel Heroic Roleplaying
- Sentinels of the Multiverse
- The Resistance
- Lords of Waterdeep
- Dungeon World
- Legend of Drizzt
- Elder Sign
- Race to Adventure
So, come on out to C4 next weekend and play some games with me. It’ll be fun!
